Source3 has today announced a licensing agreement with Capcom to provide 3D printed versions of the cover art for Capcom’s much anticipated 'Street Fighter V' video game, scheduled for release in March 2016. The cover is making its debut today at ComicCon in San Diego, at the Capcom Booth (215), where it will be available for preview and pre-order on the show floor.
As the images show, the cover depicts Street Fighter character, Ryu and it is the first time a Street Fighter character has been licensed for production via 3D printing.
According to Scott Sellwood, CoFounder and VP of Business Development at Source3: “Our twin goals at Source3 are bringing premium, licensed content to the 3D industries and demonstrating the power of 3D printing to brands. It is exciting to work with a forwardthinking creative team like Capcom to use 3D printing to connect fans to iconic characters using innovative technologies.”
Francis Mao, Senior Director, Marketing, Creative Services, Events and Licensing, Capcom, Inc. USA, further commented: “Capcom is excited to offer such a unique Street Fighter collectible to all its fans, utilizing cutting edge 3D technology. This is the first of many Capcom images that will be brought to life in the amazing world of 3D printing."
Source3 partnered with ZVerse for the production of the cover utilising its 3D colour printing technology and proprietary Layr content creation platform, which converts 2D images into 3D printable models. The company states that ZVerse's technology perfectly captured the look and energy of the Street Fighter brand. Available from ComicCon today, the cover will also be available exclusively on the Source3 Amazon marketplace.
